I finally got the beads and have caught up my beading to the cross stitching already done…
Just wanted to post some progress on one of my [many] projects.
Celtic Summer is one that I pick up occasionally, but have been too busy to actually sit and do any real work on it. Well, earlier this week, I received the beads for it and decided to try to bead along with the actual stitching. Have been a stitching fool ever since!
What do you think? 🙂
Look! I’m finally posting something! Woo Hoo!!!
I have been working on my Celtic Summer cross stitch for a little while now. Decided to break it down and do one square inch per night, so it doesn’t seem so daunting. I still need to order the beads for it (trying to bead and backstitch as I go so THAT doesn’t drive me batty by the end).
In case the picture isn’t clear, it’s the middle-middle up and over to the top left…not much. Barely the back of her bodice, the back of her hair, the second “M” in “Summer” and the top border.
I can’t remember the exact date I started, but I know it’s written down somewhere. When I find it, I’ll update here.
My NEXT WIP is Celtic Summer by Lavendar & Lace (Marilyn Leavitt-Imblum).
I purchased the pattern from Stitchery.com (MANY moons ago, along with the other three seasons. I finished Celtic Spring in October 2009).

I plan to stitch on 14-count Hand-Dyed Aida (Highland).

I still need to buy the beads, but since I won’t be beading until the end, I can wait a little bit. And ALSO, since I plan to buy ALL the beads I need for the remaining Seasons, I need to save up some moolah (I’ve estimated $60 to purchase remaining supplies).
